News from La Casa de Panchita

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters:

This year, on Sunday the 22nd of July, we celebrated our 23 anniversary! For 12 years now on our anniversary we also pause to remember our beloved “big sister” Elsa M. Chaney who passed away July 16th, 2000.

As every year, we wanted to celebrate with all the people we care about: the domestic workers who find in La Casa de Panchita a space to learn and laugh, the young women and girls in domestic work who have found in us people they can trust, and all our friends, volunteers, and staff who even if they can’t be there in person, are present in our hearts.

We started with a big poster on the wall, done by students of the Escuela de Bellas Artes of Lima, on which everyone could write a message for our anniversary. Afterward came music in the main room by players from Star Factory, an organization that sponsors rock and pop bands.  Some of our little girls put on a great dance show. Closing time came and went… the music and dancing went on for two more hours. No matter how young or old, all of us were on the dance floor shaking our bodies.

You can meet people from La Casa in this video clip (at the end are some great moments from the party):  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id4KE78DlGg 

We want all of you to be part of our joy that happens not only on La Casa’s celebration day, but every day and with every action you take to help girls and women in domestic work. We’re deeply grateful to count on you as a supporter and a friend.

Dear Global Giving Supporters:

 

Today is the WORLD DAY AGAINST CHILD LABOR and we wanted to invite you to join us in the celebrations through our facebook page http://www.facebook.com/lacasadepanchita   

Every June 12 we all remind ourselves how important it is to create awareness about child domestic work among the young domestic workers themselves, their families, the Government, and the society as a whole. We still have a long way to go, but every girl who comes to La Casa de Panchita is a new inspiration to us.

Please help us in this effort. All day Wednesday June 13, starting at 12:01 AM EDT, GlobalGiving will match all donations up to $1,000 per donor. If you donate even a small sum like $10, GlobalGiving will make it $20. Every little bit helps. This is a great opportunity to make your donation grow and support our girls!

Thank you for your continued support of the cause!

With gratitude,

Blanca Figueroa
